    Google phone dialer has a neat feature - it indicates spam phone calls. It's missing in OnePlus 6. Could we get it in the next update?

    You can block numbers in the Contacts app. Also, by long pressing a number in the call log, you can choose to block that number.

    Google dialer does more - it checks the number against the list of known spam numbers and shows a warning before you answer the phone.

    Looks like you're right, I just did a quick Google and there is no way to get it to work without root/magisk

    I too am coming from a Google phone.

    I like my 6, but I HATE that this feature is missing and I'm now trying to figure out what 3rd party dailer might be reputable and work. Something as small, but important, as this will prevent me from recommending OnePlus phones and buying another one.

    That and how awful, sneaky, & ignorant the predictive text feature is. It's always making my writing unlegible and correcting the goobly gook takes too long.
